Seattle Business Magazine honors Telect and Williams family with award

Liberty Lake-based Telect Inc. was chosen the 2014 Washington Family Business of the Year during awards at a recent Seattle banquet.

Telect makes and designs network equipment and software solutions.

Choosing Telect was Seattle Business magazine. The publication gave the family-owned business the Family Business Award for Transformation.

It cited the Williams family -- who started the company in 1982 -- for "encouraging and embracing new opportunities" in their family-owned and family-operated Washington business.

Founders Bill and Judi Williams continue as board members. Their son Wayne Williams has been CEO since 1997.
